Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Clayton, NC

I have been working at Grifols - Spain full-time

ProsMinimal mental thought process is required for most entry level positions. Compensation for overtime if an hourly employee.

ConsSome departments (if not most) promote based on seniority and not credentials. There is very little room for advancement because of seniority based promotions. Salary is not competitive. The turnover rate in certain divisions is extremely high. There are no sick days.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Do not make a mistake

Technical Department (Former Employee)
Barcelona (Spain)

I worked at Grifols - Spain full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood balance work/personal Life.
Easy and not stressfull job, no competitivity among colleagues.

ConsMiddle age management. Low rates, awful management based on years on the same job instead of skills.
Top educated people focused on administrative tasks.
Better not to think, not to have ideas, just follow instructions.
Low employees profile since they are recruited at first level entry with no additional tuition or experience. People don't want to move or improve in their careers which makes innovation impossible. There's no team work, you just obey your manager.
High replacement rate in many departments when someone with ambition and eager to grow comes in.
Awful psycho-social external evaluations, with high sick leave (depression).

Advice to Senior ManagementReconsider the way your employees are treated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
